Goar Professor of Aerospace Studies, Air Force ROTC Detachment 925 (608) 262-3440 Fall 2013; Monday & Wednesday, 1600 – 1715; AFROTC Building, Rm. 140 1433 Monroe St, Madison, WI Course Description: This course introduces the basic elements of US national security organization, process and policy. Through readings, lecture and guided discussion, you will also gain a better understanding of current international issues affecting the military profession. The course further focuses on developing the communication skills required of an Air Force officer. Course Objectives: 1. Comprehend the basic elements of national security process and policy. 2. Comprehend the air and space power functions and competencies. 3. Understand selected roles of the military in society and current issues affecting the military profession. 4. Understand selected provisions of the military justice system. 5. Comprehend the responsibility, authority, and functions of an Air Force commander. 6. Apply listening, speaking, and writing skills in Air Force-centric formats and situations with accuracy, clarity, and appropriate style. 7. Understand the factors that facilitate a smooth transition from civilian to military life. 8. Increase understanding of language and culture differences of other regions of the world where the United States has interests. Texts / Reading Assignments: As readings will provide a framework for class discussion, I strongly recommend you read the assigned selections before the relevant lecture. There may be a ‘pop-quiz’ or activities that will require you to be familiar with the information. T- 408 - National Security Affairs and Preparation for Active Duty, 2013/2014 Edition AFH 33-337 “The Tongue and Quill” All reading assignments can be found on the Holm Center website ( A Yahoo or Google e-mail address is required to access the site material. Classroom Rules of Engagement 1. Attendance: Cadets must attend at least 80 percent of scheduled class sessions to achieve a passing grade. However, you should certainly strive to attend ALL classes, as doing the minimum necessary is not encouraged either in AFROTC or in the operational Air Force. Academic only students (non- AFROTC students) do not have a minimum attendance percentage. However, your class participation grade will be influenced by your attendance.

2. Uniform: Uniform wear is not mandatory for each class period (but dress will be according to the Detachment 925 Commander’s discretion). When giving a formal presentation (briefing), cadets will be required to wear their Air Force service dress uniform. Academic only students will wear business formal attire. 3. Military protocol: Cadets - observe military customs and courtesies at all times. Call the room to attention when the instructor (or a military officer senior to your instructor) enters or leaves the room. If an officer senior to your instructor enters the room during a lecture from your instructor, do not call the room to attention. Academic only students are not required to come to attention, but please stand along with your classmates for uniformity. 4. Food and drink: Feel free to bring either, but enough to share. Just clean up after yourself. Please refrain from eating and drinking during any presentations by fellow classmates. 5. NO CELL PHONES ALLOWED IN THE CLASSROOM! 6. Leadership Lab (LLAB) is required for all cadets enrolled in AS 400. LLAB is held every Tuesday 0630-0830, but may be held at other times for special events (i.e. Dining Out). Assignments: 1. Classroom Participation: I encourage and expect your active participation. 2. Unified Combatant Command Assignment: The Unified Combatant Commands we will cover this semester include AFRICOM, CENTCOM and PACOM. You will be required to present a formal briefing on a minimum of two cultural domains associated with a country in your assigned AOR, lasting 8-10 minutes. Choose a country and at least two cultural domains from attachment two of this syllabus. Deconflict with your classmates (no two cadets will brief the same country). Additionally, you will write a one to two page background paper on your subject that will be due on the day of your briefing. Use the Tongue and Quill pp. 215-216 for Background Paper format. Cite references in your work using the Tongue and Quill pp. 344-346. Use the “Textnotes” means of identifying your sources on p. 345, and follow the “Guide to Typing a Bibliography” on p. 346. Your bibliography will be a separate page from the bullet background paper. 3. Computer Based Training (CBT): As you will find in the active duty Air Force, CBTs are commonplace to provide primary and ancillary training. The material in the CBTs is testable. 4. Exams/Quizzes: Exams will be a compilation of multiple choice, fill in the blank and essay questions. Quizzes on readings or topics covered in class, will be given as “no notice” or via the Learn@UW website. 2
